Spirit House

The Spirit House was built by Timothy Brown, a New Englander from Ryegate, Vermont. Brown moved to Georgetown sometime in the 1850s. One day, Brown announced that he had been called upon to build a house that would serve as a temple of Spiritualism. Although Brown was no architect, he soon purchased a piece of property in the center of town, and set out building the house under the direction of the spirits.

Spirit House

The "Spirit House" is a 19th century Spiritualist's house with "wedding cake-like" decorations, a funnel-shaped roof that drains to the center of the structure and "spirit closets" built under the eaves. Site of seances, etc.
